1 - Athletico

They were called out, and they responded in style; only dropping a single round to Legacy in the semi finals of RLO XVI and finishing with a goal difference upwards of 30. The community responded in kind as their return generated more viewership than the scene has seen in recent weeks. Athletico broke their silence by screaming to us and the community that they're still here and they're still the best OCE has to offer, as they return to the number 1 spot on the power rankings.

Having been clean swept 2-0 by Blitzkrieg in the quarterfinals of last week's RLO A's tournament, Abyss have dropped down into second position, giving way back to Athletico. A poor turnout from Abyss lead to the top seed heading home early from RLO, but saw them show up in full force to Gameroos on Tuesday. Without dropping a single game in the group stage and taking Legacy out 2-0 in the semi-final, all eyes were on Abyss heading into the grand final. Taking on a strong Alpha Sydney side, Abyss managed a comfortable 3-1 victory to take out Tuesday nights tournament. Abyss did not show up to Thursday nights tournament, however they are still yet to lose in any Gameroos tournament they have competed in. Can Abyss keep the fight for the top spot alive? - Nutterres
3/4 Tied - Alpha Sydney

Bringing out some formidable performances recently as number 3 on the power rankings continues be a closely contested position. The rivalry between Alpha Sydney and Legacy eSports increases week by week with the third position seemingly switching hands just as often. However, since the inclusion of GroovyGrape to the roster they have looked to be a more consistent and confident outfit, managing to take out both Gameroos tournaments this week. It will be interesting to see if either team can pull away from each other as the weeks progress.. - n0lsk1
3/4 Tied - Legacy

I am really liking Legacy's play at the moment. This week they mostly played with subs, however still put up impressive showings. Legacy had Athletico on the rope in RLO Sunday but Althetico fought back and showed why they should still number 1 with absolute brute force. Their passing plays and teamwork are often number 1 for me and Legacy still have the ability to beat anyone, but will their skillful team play and touch beat brute force on the day?
5 - Corvidae
Siki, Daze, Daisu

Corvidae made it to the final of RLO Sunday beating out Alpha Sydney, Blitzkreig and Phoenix to get there, however fell short after a 0-3 against the Top of OCE Athletico. They trades wins with Alpha Sydney this week with a win on Sunday (2-1) but a loss on Thursday (1-2). Corvidae is doing better against the top sides, however are still a little bit off making it into the elusive top 4 on the PR. Corvidae's number one tactic - Pressure. Any team with Daisu on it brings the pressure in spades. The top 4 though generally manage to find their way through the super aggressiveness. but when it pays off, it is a beautiful thing to watch.
6 - Gameroos

Gameroos seem to be in a bit of turmoil this week. Their recent results against the top teams can be accounted for by the lack of a constant roster. It seems that the availabilities of the teammates are affecting the results and hopefully they can find the time to show the rest of OCE what they really have in store. They had their full roster for only one tournament this week and it was cut short by a 0-2 loss against Legacy eSports. I believe that Gameroos definitely have the potential to play better than they are now, and only time will tell.
7 - FuroX

FuroX had a tough week. They were annihilated by Athletico in the RLO Sunday and were beaten 1-2 by Legacy in the Gameroos Tuesday tournament. It's hard to judge a team on facing against those teams, as such they retain their 7th spot on the rankings. A strong team with consistently strong performances against all teams lower at the moment, however still struggling to contest with teams higher than them.
8 - Blitzkrieg

Blitzkrieg are beginning to show signs of greater consistency having knocked out top seed Abyss in the quarterfinals of last week's RLO A's bracket with a 2-0 sweep, along with successfully making the quarterfinals of the Gameroos brackets for both Tuesday and Thursday. On both occasions Blitzkrieg went down 2-1 in the quarterfinals losing only to Alpha Sydney and MJ Support Club (Legacy + Nerd). I believe we can expect some great improvements from these lads, and with some more consistent performances we can definitely see them climb the power rankings further. - Nutterres
9 - Team Erase

Team erase have impressed everyone with their performance this week. Starting with Gameroos Tuesday, they showed excellent form. Moving on from the group stages and beating Corvidae in the finals stage, only to lose 2-1 in a series against Alpha Sydney. However it seems the later part of the week didn't hold as much promise, losing in the early stages of Gameroos and RLO A's division. Team Erase sure has the promise of a solid lineup and great teamplay, but in order to beat the better teams they need to improve in consistency and become comfortable with each other, I believe they can do just that and more so only time will tell...
10 - Phoenix Gaming
Epanai, EyeDeeKay, Tenacity, Wolfeeyyy
| + 1
A new addition to the top 10 is Phoenix Gaming, albeit at the benefit of a chaotic tail end of the power rankings. Nonetheless, they rise above the rest despite their relatively poor results of late. Unable to make an impact against the stronger teams like Alpha Sydney and Abyss eSports, they are still able to produce convincing victories against teams of similar experience. The new additions of Tenacity and ex-Singularity star Wolfeeyyy to the experienced partnership of Epanai and EyeDeeKay are still a little rough around the edges to offer a sufficient challenge to higher ranked teams, but with time and a boost to their confidence they'll be a force to be reckoned with. - n0lsk1
